Congratulations to Mark Cirino, assistant professor of English, who recently published a new book, Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action.
Although much has been written about Hemingway's love of action — hunting, fishing, drinking, bullfighting, boxing, travel, and the moveable feast — Cirino looks at the author’s focus on the modern mind and interest in consciousness. Hemingway, Cirino demonstrates, probes the ways his characters’ minds respond when placed in urgent situations or when damaged by past traumas.
Cirino is the coeditor of Ernest Hemingway: Geography of Memory and the general editor of Kent State University Press’s “Reading Hemingway” series. He is also the author of two novels, Name the Baby and Arizona Blues.
Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action is available from the University of Wisconsin Press.
